I congratulate Incat on winning a major contract to build four new ferries for Manly Fast Ferries in Sydney.
This new contract will generate more job opportunities, and further enhance Incat’s reputation as a world class boat builder.
It’s a wonderful advertisement for Tasmania’s maritime manufacturing sector and a tribute to Incat that its iconic vessels will soon by plying Sydney Harbour, carrying thousands of passengers daily.
Combined with the growing employment numbers, record levels of retail trade, a tourism boom and a strong construction sector, this announcement adds to the growing sense of optimism and confidence in Tasmania.
